Medical Marijuana in New Jersey. Finally.

When the NJ Senate and Assembly overwhelmingly passed a medical marijuana bill yesterday it put the Garden State in line to be the 14th state in the union to decriminalize cannabis for sick people.

Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll has the QOTD in this one for sure.

I’ve posted so many videos on this site and elsewhere I can’t hardly remember them all, but this issue is possibly the most satisfying day I’ve has as an activist since the Obama/Alder double victory.  

So take a minute to meet the heros of this battle.  

One Hurdle Down, Three to Go: a schizophrenic day for Marriage

Jay Lassiter planned all along to go down to the statehouse yesterday and blog for us. But then, something happened in his hometown, that made him stay there, to capture for you today what the people of Cherry Hill did when the fools came to town. Great job, Jay – promoted by Rosi

Today the NJ Senate Judiciary voted on gay marriage equality.   And what a long strange trip it’s been clearing the first hurdle.

Marriage Equality, the Highlight reel

Promoted by Jason Springer: Jay gives us more of the view from Trenton, this time in Video. Thanks for being there to tell the story for us.

There’s too much work to be done to WIN marriage equality that I don’t have the time to polish off the perfect video.  It’s a rush job.

But it’s only 2m20 you totally get the message.

Thank You Speaker Roberts

Thanks, Jay,for bringing this sharply into focus again. – – – Promoted from the diaries by Rosi

Twenty years from now this is how I will remember Assembly Speaker Joe Roberts.  (Flashback from November 2007)

Honoring Senator Kennedy

Jay …. this is lovely. — promoted by Rosi

One of the best things about spending the last four years following politicians around with a video camera is the tons of file footage I’ve acquired.  It’s an especially useful tool for expressing one’s self when words are hard to find.  Like now.

“Cherry Hill will be Christie Country!!!”

Promoted by Jason Springer: Chris Christie was in Cherry Hill today and Jay Lassiter, who dubbed himself the official welcome wagon head cheerleader was there to say hello.

Chris Christie and I crossed paths today at my local Jersey diner.  Thankfully the encounter did not happen in the men’s room.

P.S.  Kim Guadagno was there too.  She was pretty smooth with the crowd and and came off appealing.  (just saying……)
